August 2019 | Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta

The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute proudly support Italian restorer, Michaela Anselmini, from the Art Restoration Studio - Sarasvati Art Communication & Publication.  After successfully completing the restoration work at the Kraton Yogja she starts a restoration project of an art work belonging to the collection of the Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta.
The Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta is a historical hotel and the working restoration site requires a large space the artwork itself, painted by Maestro Lee Man Fong in 1961, made especially for the Hotel, covers around 10x4 m.
Over the years the painting has been moved until its current location, at the entrance to the Lobby which is Bali Room.  Given the size and location, as it is not possible to move it again, it was decided to carry out the restoration on site.  The project itself will last approximately one year.
In conjunction with this restoration, Art Restoration Studio - Sarasvati Art Communication & Publication is proud to present training of the conservation of paintings to two selected Indonesian students under the direct guidance of Michaela Anselmini; the training is sponsored by P.T. Lyra Akrelux, and lasts two years.
